Aldi Ireland is to submit a planning application to Limerick County Council for a new €7 million store located in Moyross, Co. Limerick.
The discounter is aiming to open the store in mid-2024, when it said it will create up to 30 permanent jobs. Up to 50 jobs will be supported during the construction period.
The new store will feature Aldi’s award-winning Project Fresh layout and will include 117 customer car parking spaces and 10 bike parking spaces.
Aldi said it will invest in the future of Moyross through the provision of four free-to-use electric vehicle charging points. The 1315sq. m store while the store will be powered by 100% green electricity and will feature 90sq. m of solar panels on the roof.
Commenting, Colin Breslin, regional managing director, Aldi Ireland said: “We’re delighted to submit our plans for a store in Moyross and to commit to further investment in Co. Limerick.
“The new store will provide even further opportunities for local food and drink producers to work with Aldi. Last year alone we sourced €9.5 million of locally produced food and drink from Co. Limerick based suppliers.”
Earlier this year, Aldi was granted final planning permission by An Bord Pleanála to open its fourth store in Co. Limerick on Roches St, Limerick City, which is set to open in mid-2023.
To date, Aldi’s Limerick stores have donated over 41,000 meals to local charities through FoodCloud, saving the charities nearly €52,000. Each store is also part of Aldi’s Community Grants network, with Limerick Animal Welfare, Butterfly Club and ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services some of the many local charities that have availed of the €500 bursary grant in recent years.
